We love composition notebooks.

This blog is dedicated to compies. Composition notebooks. Those affordably priced books with the distinctive marbled cardboard covers, flimsy non-archival paper, and intrusive blue lines.

We've all used them at one time or another, but for some reason moved on to other, more expensive, fancypants notebooks. Bah! A notebook is a sidekick, not a butler.

We say a $10 notebook is too elite for the frequent usage, regular abuse and general work that a good compy provides. A notebook's value comes from us, not the specs or pricetag.

We see a compy as a blank canvas, ready for us to hack and modify for our own daily adventures. A notebook wants to be customized, not revered.

We want to see each other's books, to share knowledge, creativity, and a general can-do spirit. Compies are the people's notebook.

We love composition notebooks.

    Here! Here!

    Wrote about my compy love at another forum.

    I love that it's really inconvenient to tear pages out of composition notebooks. I'm encouraged to revisit ideas from time to time, even bad ideas.

    Baker Office Supply in Greenfield, Massachusetts has the best selection of compies I've ever seen.
